— Matt Mullenweg, Founder, WordPress. The future of WordPress: Q&A with founder Matt Mullenweg.
Maine’s Bangor Daily News pimped out WordPress in order to create a single editorial workflow for online and print.
The Bangor Daily News announced this week that it completed its full transition to open source blogging software, WordPress. And get this: The workflow integrates seamlessly with InDesign, meaning the paper now has one content management system for both its web and print operations. And if you’re auspicious enough, you can do it too — he’s open-sourced all the code!
The newspaper’s reporters and editors initially write their articles in Google Docs and when ready to publish send it over to WordPress in a single click. Once in WordPress, it’s just a matter of categorizing and adding some additional metadata.
They then leveraged WordPress’ APIs to create an InDesign plugin that sucks content out of the CMS and into that program.
Click through to watch a short screencast, and check out the plugins they’ve open sourced so you can play with it to.
WordPress Suffers Denial of Service Attack
- Sara Rosso: The size of the attack is multiple Gigabits per second and tens of millions of packets per second
- Matt Mullenweg: We suspect it may have been politically motivated against one of our non-English blogs but we're still investigating and have no definitive evidence yet.
- US: WordPress.com was targeted by a distributed denial of service attack yesterday that affected millions of sites, including those if VIP clients such as TechCrunch, National Post and others. Do events like these give publishers pause when deciding to move their sites to a hosting/service provider like WordPress, where random attacks against others can bring down their own publications?
WordPress 3.1 was released Tuesday with this note from its founder Matt Mullenweg.
There’s a bucket of candy for developers as well, including our new Post Formats support which makes it easy for themes to create portable tumblelogs with different styling for different types of posts, new CMS capabilities like archive pages for custom content types, a new Network Admin, an overhaul of the import and export system, and the ability to perform advanced taxonomy and custom fields queries.
With the 3.1 release, WordPress is more of a CMS than ever before. The only limit to what you can build is your imagination.
We like WordPress. We like it a whole lot. And so too do others throughout the online world. It’s pretty much the most popular blogging engine around and is used by news organizations like Reuters, Time, the New York Times, CNN, Le Monde, Fortune and the BBC.
We also like Tumblr and take WordPress’ imitation of Tumblry features as their sincerest form of flattery yet.
shortformblog asked: As a brief follow on your last response, I'd like to note that a lot of our posts are put onto Tumblr using a heavily-modified version of the Tumblrize plugin.
The reason why I do this is that the community here is a lot better and it's a better fit for the content, but I need a tad more than your standard Tumblr setup, since much of my stuff is built using different forms of CSS.
In a lot of ways, it's the best of both worlds, but we're honestly looking for a solution to the "more complex posting needs" problem that you eventually run into with Tumblr, because we'd like to do this full time.
Have taken a look at your WP site and am impressed and the WordPress Tumblrize plugin is a good one.
We’ve played with it a bit and found that it works best when we set our WP post to Tumble as a text post. Otherwise, we find it a bit of a crap shoot if we try to post as a Photo, Video, etc., especially since we use a lot of Custom Fields.
End WP nerdery.
Other than that, as I wrote in the Tumblr v WordPress post, I absolutely agree with you on the best of both worlds idea. If you have the bandwidth, it shouldn’t be an either/or proposition but instead both/and.
Thanks for the feedback.
